I've installed MATLAB R2011a on Ubuntu 11.10 today following Ubuntu's guide.
I've also followed the steps to create the launcher. It appeared, but when I click on it nothing happens. Does anyone knows what can I do to fix it?
I can run it perfectly through terminal. My only problem is getting the launcher to work.
To create the launcher I used these instructions:
Get an icon:
sudo wget http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Matlab_Logo.png -O /usr/share/icons/matlab.png
Get the launcher file:
sudo wget 'https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MATLAB?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=matlab-r2011a.desktop' -O /usr/share/applications/matlab.desktop
